Emmanuel Macron forced Trump to sit through a Daft Punk cover band

July 14 marks Bastille Day in France, and to celebrate, French president Emmanuel Macron, U.S. president Donald Trump (the two of whom had a super long and uncomfortable handshake), and other dignitaries were treated to a parade.

We doubt he's even up all night for good fun, but nevertheless, the President of the United States got lucky in France today watching the Bastille Day celebrations. Highlights of the trip so far have included the president appraising French first lady Brigitte Macron's body, being forced to eat a bunch of food he hates, and now, to cap the jaunt off, attending a military parade in honor of the holiday.

Daft Punk, famed for wearing robot suits and not revealing their true identities, are one of France's most acclaimed dance music acts. Based on his expression, Trump didn't particularly enjoy the brass-heavy combination of "One More Time", "Get Lucky", and "Harder Better Faster Stronger".

Mendy will reportedly cost the English side around £40 million (R683 million) and this deal is expected to be done before next. Gianluca Di Marzio reported earlier this summer that Liverpool had emerged as contenders to try and sign the defender .

Honestly, how could you help but smile?

Another said: "Do you think this visit was actually just so Macron could troll Trump and subliminally call him a "Daft Punk"?" Trump's probably a purist and prefers the more electronics studio version, or perhaps the live performance from Alive 2007.

Trump is, apparently, not familiar with their music.
